Subject Re: OSGi R6 support in Felix

Mark, thank you so much for sharing that :-)

I certainly don't fear the functional though - I am wholeheartedly
embracing it, I am just curious about the long-term future of Java (and
The JVM - in the form of things like Frege and Scala - certainly offers
interesting possibilities in terms of functional programming.

The primary challenge facing me, is that I am having a hard time
integrating classical, pure functional programming with the ad-hoc
modularity that OSGi enables.
A large part of functional programming is the provability of correctness
etc, and this flies out the window when components can come and go.

Interesting times...
